Picks that have signed are:
Fourth-round guard Terry Poole, fourth-round guard Mark Glowinski, sixth-round defensive end Obum Gwacham, fifth-round cornerback Tye Smith, sixth-round center Kristjan Sokoli and seventh-round safety Ryan Murphy.
Smith and Johnson vied for the job throughout the offseason and preseason, with the latter even earning a start at one point. However, Smith must have proved the health of his right knee enough to earn the trust of the coaching staff. Although Eli Manning has started 199 consecutive regular-season games, Smith will now be called upon in garbage time or in the event of an injury. Rounding out the QB depth chart is 2017 second-round pick Davis Webb.
Hunter was waived in order to create a roster spot for Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie, who is returning from his indefinite suspension this week. The cornerback likely will end up on the Giants' injured reserve as soon as he clears waivers.
Wynn visited the Patriots last week but will ultimately remain in the Big Apple, where he has spent his entire three-year career, playing mainly in a special teams role. Last season, he recorded 12 tackles and 0.5 sacks through 14 games with the Giants.
With Johnathan Hankins on the way out, the Giants had a need for a big defensive tackle. Tomlinson is certainly that at 6-foot-3, 310 pounds, but he also did well with his athletic testing at the Combine. He likely won't be an IDP factor, but Tomlinson should be a good replacement for Hankins as a run stopper.
Lacosse missed the entirety of last season with a torn ACL and only played in two games during his 2015 rookie season, so he has much to prove before becoming a factor in the Giants offense.
Perkins was able to practice on a limited basis this week, but he has not yet recovered to the point where he is ready for game action. With him able to get some work in this week and the Giants on bye next week, though, it seems likely he could return for the team's next game in Week 9. Orleans Darkwa is the favorite to be the top running back this week, but Week 6 was the first time all season he led Giants running backs in snaps, and Shane Vereen and Wayne Gallman could both still be involved in some fashion.
Cockrell wasn't seeming likely to make the final roster, so it's smart for the Steelers to get something in return, rather than release him. With the Giants, Cockrell will provide depth behind starters Janoris Jenkins and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
Thomas suffered some sort of groin injury this past Monday against the Lions. His absence should open up more snaps for Keenan Robinson and Curtis Grant.
Harrison added four tackles (three solo) to go along with his take down of the quarterback. The 28-year-old defensive tackle was on the field for just 32 defensive snaps (40.0 percent).
Apple matched his season total for passes defended in the outing. He did all his damage in 78 defensive snaps (96.0 percent). The 22-year-old should continue to present problems for opposing quarterbacks as the season goes on.
Entering Week 6, the Broncos had held the likes of Melvin Gordon, Ezekiel Elliott, LeSean McCoy and Marshawn Lynch to a combined 1.9 YPC -- but that didn't stop Darkwa from running wild Sunday. Before game's end, the fourth-year undrafted tailback out of Tulane scampered for a career-high 121 rushing yards at a 5.6 YPC clip. Considering Paul Perkins (ribs) didn't practice in any capacity this past week while Wayne Gallman and Shane Vereen combined for just 31 yards on 10 carries, Darkwa probably secured the team's lead-back role along the way. While he won't find things any easier in Week 7 against a stout Seahawks front, Darkwa's fantasy line should at least be buoyed by a healthy allotment of touches in a Giants offense desperately searching for playmakers.
Jenkins took the pick 43-yards to the house. The play came just before halftime to give the Giants a two touchdown advantage. The 28-year-old cornerback was on the field for 78 defensive snaps (96.0 percent).
Jerry was held out of Wednesday's practice entirely due to the mouth issue, but the day off looks to have been all he needed. Expect Jerry to be active for Sunday's home contest against the Seahawks.
Williams totaled six tackles and one sack in four preseason games for the Giants, but ultimately didn't quite show enough to warrant a roster spot. The 24-year-old has bounced around a few teams' practice squads after going undrafted in 2015 and has yet to appear in an NFL game.
In addition to Beckham, the Giants now use an IR spot for fellow receiver Dwayne Harris (foot), who is scheduled to undergo season-ending surgery Tuesday. This opened up roster spots for Tavarres King and Travis Rudolph. It's expected that Brandon Marshall (ankle) will soon join Beckham and Harris on IR after undergoing his own season-ending surgery Tuesday, leaving Sterling Shepard (ankle) as the Giants' new unquestioned top receiver. Those absences are also likely to open up starting roles for holdover Roger Lewis and King, who were both listed as members of the first team along with Shepard on the Giants' unofficial depth chart heading into Sunday's game against the Broncos, according to Art Stapleton of The Bergen Record. Tight end Evan Engram, who boasts enough speed to line up out wide, could also benefit from increased targets with the losses of Beckham, Marshall and Harris creating a major void in the Giants' passing attack.
Engram effectively served as Eli Manning's No. 1 receiver Sunday in the absence of Odell Beckham (ankle), Brandon Marshall (ankle) and Sterling Shepard (ankle). By day's end, the rookie tight end finished with four more targets than the next-busiest receiver and ultimately turned his frequent opportunities into a productive fantasy outing -- which was particularly encouraging to see after he dropped a goose egg in Week 5. While it's possible Shepard becomes the apple of Manning's eye before long, Engram is positioned to be one of his quarterback's first reads every time the Giants look to throw and should be in store for a hefty workload throughout the rest of the season.
Harris, who was waived by the Chargers on Monday, will provide the Giants with extra depth at linebacker, though his main responsibilities will come on special teams.
Thompson was supposed to be the Giants' starting free safety last season, but a foot injury limited the rookie to only two contests. Now healthy, Thompson is looking to make 2017 a bounce-back campaign after spending last season studying the defense on the sideline. However, backup Andrew Adams was impressive during OTAs and could give Thompson a run for his money during training camp.
Pierre-Paul is completely healthy and apparently unhampered by his damaged hand. He's an excellent IDP defensive lineman due to his ability to rack up tackles as well as sacks.
Jones makes his return to a reserve role Sunday.
Eagan is the third receiver to sign with the Giants in less than two days, with his addition corresponding with three of the team's top five wideouts (Odell Beckham, Brandon Marshall and Dwayne Harris) landing on injured reserve with season-ending injuries. Beyond Sterling Shepard -- who may be at risk of missing Sunday's game against the Broncos with an injury of his own -- the Giants' entire wideout corps is almost entirely unproven, so Eagan should have as good of an opportunity as the rest of the lot to establish himself as a dependable target for quarterback Eli Manning. Until Eagan, who was cut by the Giants in training camp, translates any offensive snaps he receives into meaningful production, he won't warrant much more than a speculative pickup in very deep fantasy formats.
Lewis was in line for more work as the team's ostensible No. 1 receiver, but the Broncos have excellent cover corners, the Giants were ahead all game and it's always hard to count on unproven wideouts to step into large roles. Still, until Sterling Shepard returns from an ankle injury, Lewis is still the team's top wideout, even though it's clear TE Evan Engram is Eli Manning's top target.
Adams notched 46 tackles, five passes defensed and one interception over 14 games last season as a replacement for Darian Thompson, who missed almost the entire year with a foot injury. However, with Thompson back to full health, it appears as if he is the favorite to claim the starting free safety role. While Adams is a dark horse, it's tough to rule out the 24-year-old completely, making this training camp battle quite intriguing.
Assuming he plays, the rookie will make his career debut in Sunday's game against the Eagles. Williams came into the league as a linebacker, but he will be playing defensive end for the foreseeable future. He figures to help provide depth at the position.
He only played 68 snaps in 2016, but Thomas is competing for a larger role on the defensive front this season. Now that he's healthy, Thomas can try stealing snaps from fellow tackle Jay Bromley.
Webb, a rookie third-round pick out of California, has yet to make his NFL debut. So long as starter Eli Manning and top backup Geno Smith both remain healthy, Webb is unlikely to dress on game days.
It was an impressive yet odd night for Manning, who was playing in his first game without any of Odell Beckham (ankle), Brandon Marshall (ankle) or Sterling Shepard (ankle). Not only was he able to pull off the stunning upset on the road against one of the better defensive units in the league, but Manning did it while only completing two passes to wide receivers. However, even if his passing volume rises back to normal levels once Shepard reinserts himself back into the lineup, Manning's fantasy upside figures to remain limited going forward as the Giants look to lean on their strong defense and emerging run game in the absence of effective pass catchers. He'll particularly be hard to trust in Week 7 when Seattle comes to town.
With Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suspended indefinitely, the Giants used the open roster spot to promote Deayon. The cornerback will serve as a depth option in New York until Rodgers-Cromartie is eligible to return to the field.
Gettis has spent the majority of the previous three seasons on the Giants practice squad. While he was competing for a spot on the final roster during training camp, his odds of doing so were believed to be slim. He will now spend the entire 2017 season on IR with a foot injury.
'Unga, a one-time starter for the Giants back in 2015, spent the entire season on injured reserve with an unknown injury. He'll need to get healthy in order to land another contract.
Harris' placement on IR comes as no surprise after the receiver was ruled out for the season due to a fractured foot he sustained in Sunday's loss to the Chargers. Harris is set to undergo surgery Tuesday, with the expectation being that he'll be ready to go for the start of the 2018 campaign.
Richburg will miss his third consecutive week, and Brent Jones will continue snapping the ball for the Giants.
Hart missed Week 3 after hurting his ankle in Week 2. However, after fitting in limited practice sessions Thursday and Friday, he appears to be good to go moving forward.
Powe was waived off injured reserve by the Giants at the close of the preseason with a hamstring injury. If the 23-year-old ever joins the 53-man roster, he could potentially have a solid chance to contribute given the season-ending injuries sustained by three Giants receivers Sunday.
New York wasted little time adding depth to its receiving corps after losing four wideouts to injury in Sunday's loss to the Chargers, including All-Pro Odell Beckham (ankle) and Dwayne Harris (foot) to likely season-ending injuries. While Beckham's absence looms largest for the Giants, Rudolph is more likely to serve as a direct replacement for Harris, whose chief responsibilities came as a returner. Rudolph had been competing with Harris in training camp for returning and slot-receiving duties before being waived and ultimately landing on the practice squad.
Gallman was passable against a tough run defense, but he's the clear backup to Orleans Darkwa, who shredded the Broncos for 117 yards on 21 carries.
Bryant suffered his elbow injury on Monday, and the Giants immediately began working out replacements for the defensive tackle. Look for Bobby Richardson to see some extra reps now that Bryant has been shut down for the year.
Scott was trying to make it as a reserve safety behind Landon Collins and Darian Thompson. He'll be eligible to sign elsewhere if he clears waivers.
Berhe was limited in practice throughout the week and likely could've played Sunday if the Giants needed him. New York is locked into the five seed for the playoffs and didn't need to force Berhe back before he's completely healthy. He appears to have a good chance at returning from his five week absence in the wildcard round of the playoffs next week.
Bundy was initially brought onto the team to add depth to a banged up receiver corps. He caught seven passes for 103 yards this preseason, but the Giants picked Tavarres King (ankle) and Dwayne Harris (upper body) as their depth receivers instead. At 6-foot-4, 215 pounds, expect Bundy to be a prime candidate for the practice squad.
Casillas will miss his second straight week with this injury after he left early in Week 5 against the Chargers. The fact that he didn't practice in any capacity this week doesn't bode well for his recovery, and Keenan Robinson will continue filling his vacancy.
Robinson has finally cleared the league-mandated protocol after sustaining a concussion in early August. The 28-year-old will likely resume a role as a special teams contributor and backup to Jonathan Casillas.
Instead of suffering an unnecessary aggravation of his sprained left ankle, Shepard will remain sidelined for a second consecutive game with a Week 8 bye imminent. With Shepard on the pine, rookie tight end Evan Engram represents the most reliable receiver in the Giants offense, though Roger Lewis, Tavarres King and Shane Vereen should also get in on the act.
Normally one of the team's top tacklers, Collins didn't record even an assist, and we have to imagine his ankle injury was a factor. Check back on his practice status this week, but when healthy, Collins is one of the elite IDPs at the safety spot.
With the Broncos favored by 13 points before kickoff, this figured to be a game flow favorable to Vereen, but the Giants not only had the lead all game, they ran effectively behind Orleans Darkwa. Vereen is still the team's third-down back, and the Giants still lack playmakers out wide, so he's likely to produce in games where the team finds itself at a deficit, and Sunday's performance notwithstanding, those games are coming.
Norwood was not considered a likely candidate to make the final roster before sustaining the injury. He will remain on the team's IR for the remainder of the season unless the two parties reach an injury settlement.
The Giants are lacking depth in the receiving corps after adding Brandon Marshall (ankle), Odell Beckham (ankle) and Dwayne Harris (foot) to injured reserve this week. As a result, Ed Eagan was promoted to the Giants' active roster Tuesday, opening up a spot for Raymond on the practice squad. Should the Giants suffer any more injuries, the 23-year-old could find himself on the active roster as well.
Dunker was waived with an injury designation Wednesday due to the foot injury he suffered in the opening days of training camp.
After only playing 15 defensive snaps in 14 games last season, Herzlich has been battling for a share of the snaps with Devon Kennard. If he cannot prove himself, though, he'll likely return to being a specialist.
Vernon is set to miss his third consecutive game Sunday, denying him a decent opportunity to pad his sack total against a porous Seahawks offensive line. Expect Avery Moss and Kerry Wynn to continue sharing the defensive end spot opposite Jason Pierre-Paul until Vernon returns.
Okwara sprained his knee in practice last week. It appears that his timetable for recovery is relatively long, as the team has opted to place him on the IR. He was played sparingly on defense, so his absence shouldn't affect the Giants' current production.
King was re-signed to be in the pass-catching mix now that the Giants have three wideouts on injured reserve and Sterling Shepard is nursing an ankle injury. While he did very little against the Broncos, King could see more targets when the game flow is more favorable. Either way, he's a long shot to make a major impact.
After landing on the Giants' injury report Thursday, Adams closed out the week with back-to-back limited sessions. The preceding wasn't exactly enough to forecast inactive status in Week 17, but the offense will nonetheless roll with Will Tye as the obvious No. 1 tight end. Due to the team's liberal use of TEs, though, Larry Donnell will likely earn some snaps as well Sunday.
Halapio will join the 53-man roster to provide some additional depth on the interior of the offensive line with Weston Richburg (concussion) at risk of missing Sunday's game against the Chargers. It's not expected that Halapio would be a candidate to start at center in that contest, as backup Brett Jones is the more likely player to enter the lineup in Richburg's stead if necessary. The 26-year-old Halapio, a sixth-round pick of the Patriots in 2014, has yet to make an NFL appearance.
The rookie has been limited to just six special teams snaps through the Giants' first four games, but his availability isn't insignificant with starting defensive end Olivier Vernon (ankle) unavailable. Even so, Kerry Wynn is in line to start in Vernon's stead, so Moss is just expected to act as insurance along the defensive line and probably won't be in store for a significant workload.
Rookie first-round pick Evan Engram is the long-term heir to the starting role at the position and is likely to see more targets in Week 1. Ellison has made his greatest impact as a run and pass blocker throughout his career, hauling in no more than 19 receptions or one touchdown in any of his previous five seasons as a member of the Vikings.
Fluker was just added to the injury report Saturday, but now that he's deemed healthy he'll be ready to step in if any injuries occur on the Giants' offensive front.
Rosas is now 7-for-9 on the year and made all 10 extra-point attempts. The rookie hasn't done anything to lose the job to this point.
Goodson, who missed the past two weeks with a shin injury, managed to participate in every practice this week and should be set to reclaim his starting role at linebacker.
Though he'll turn 34 years old in March and faces a lengthy rehab from the surgery, Marshall's comments suggest he's already preparing for a 13th NFL season. He'll enter the final year of his contract with the Giants in 2018 and may need to prove he's healthy in training camp in order to avoid being cut by the team leading up to the season.
The Giants aren't practicing on Tuesday due to taking a pair of days off following their trip out west this weekend, but the cornerback should be on the practice field Wednesday. Expect Rodgers-Cromartie to be a full go in Sunday's game against the Seahawks.
